"I cannot say enough about Theraplay. You have to experience it. You have to watch what happens to your clients when applied carefully and purposefully.
As an integrated clinician, I am eternally grateful for this wonderful technique, deceptively simple, amazingly accessible, and tested over decades with thousands of parent-child dyads. Its application is without bounds, and my purpose here is to encourage clinicians to think about Theraplay as a therapy of choice for trauma and its subsequent clinical issues."
Donaldson Adoption Institute considers Theraplay an Adoption Competent Specialized Treatment.
The Donaldson Adoption Institute’s mission is to better the lives of everyone touched by adoption through sound research, education and advocacy that improves laws, policies and practices.
Douglas Goldsmith, Ph.D. is the Executive Director of The Children’s Center, a private not for profit agency serving the mental health needs of families with children under the age of 8 years.
